With fast growing IT implementation across all industries, network infrastructure plays a key role. Network Function virtualization is a must have feature to manage various components like servers, switches, storage, etc that exists in the network infrastructure. When it comes to managing the various NFV functions, one of best platform available is Ansible. This is a great platform for automating network configuration and deployments. This is cost effective tool as it a opensource automation platform.
Main usage of Ansible in Network Automation:
- • Communicate over ssh to install python scripts.
- • API integration.
- • Manage the deployment, monitoring, and management of several types of applications.
With ansible playbook in network automation, the user can perform the registration of different services, adding of different policies and rules to the controllers and agents within the network.
Serverless computing is a cloud computing execution model in which the cloud provider dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources, and bills based on the actual amount of resources consumed by an application, rather than billing based on pre-purchased units of capacity. It is a form of utility computing. Serverless computing still requires servers. The name "serverless computing” is used because the server management and capacity planning decisions are completely hidden from the developer or operator.List of Serverless Computing Vendors:
- • AWS Lambda
- • Google Cloud Functions
- • IBM Open Whisk
Easier operational management
The serverless platform provides a clear separation between infrastructure services and applications running on top of the platform. Automatic scaling functionality of FaaS not only reduces compute cost but also reduces operational management overheads.
Product engineers can innovate at a rapid pace as serverless architecture has alleviated the problems of system engineering in the underlying platform.
Reduced operational costs
Similar to IaaS and PaaS, infrastructure and human resource cost reduction is the basic advantage of the serverless architecture. In the serverless solution, you pay for managed servers, databases and application logic. AWS Lambda bills you only for the time when the function is invoked.

How Agile Methodologies Challenge Testing
Every software development lifecycle model, from sequential to spiral to incremental to Agile, has testing implications. Some of these implications ease the testing process. We don’t need to worry about these implications here. Some of these testing implications challenge testing. Here we discuss only the challenges created by the Scrum methodology, and distinguish those from other types of testing issues.
Dealing with the Volume and Speed of Change
Remaining Effective during Very Short Iterations
Receiving Code after Inconsistent and Often Inadequate Unit Testing
Managing the Increased Regression Risk
From Detailed Documentation to Many Meetings
Holding to Arbitrary Sprint Durations
Dealing with Blind Spots in the Sprint Silos
As enterprises roll out cloud technology to enable seamless access and mobility, many organizations are adopting CRM applications that are reliable for access. It could be vulnerable for an enterprise without proper eco system in place.

Five Reasons why open source is Good for Business
The ongoing peer-review enabled by source code available publicly improves security through the identification and elimination of errors that might otherwise be missed. For example, open source Apache Web server as a more secure alternative to closed source Web Information servers.
Cost savings is one part of open source's allure, but it's still a major part, no matter what size the organization. Advantages of open sources are almost zero purchase price, no need to account for copies , reducing administrative workload, reduced demand for upgrades longer uptimes and reduced demand for expensive systems administrators, nil vulnerability to viruses phases out the virus checking, data loss and downtime, ability to lengthen life of older hardware while retaining performance.
Countless developers and users trying hard to improve the security of open source software by giving new features and enhancements to those products. In general, open source software gets closest to what end user want because those end users are in the part of making it.
In a business environment software is mostly a necessary tool to do a job. Stability of software is one of the main features in software quality management that needs to be understood and accurately predicted.
Reviewing an open source software is a continuous process, which leads to best reliability.
Integrating IT with Virtualization
What is Virtualization?
Virtualization is the process of creating a software-based (or virtual) representation of something rather than a physical one. Virtualization can apply to applications, servers, storage, and networks and is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses.Benefits of Virtualization
Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability increases and operations become automated, resulting in IT that's simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate. Additional benefits include:
- • Reduce capital and operating costs.
- • Minimize or eliminate downtime.
- • Increase IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness.
- • Provision applications and resources faster.
- • Enable business continuity and disaster recovery.
- • Simplify data centre management.
- • Build a true Software-Defined Data Center.
